Mallorca Farmhouses recommends Autumn food festivals on the island, from grape crushing competitions, to a black pudding festival and local agricultural fairs. Prices start from £630 per week.
Wine Festival in Binissalem - Cal Rei Petit (sleeps six)
Held between 21-28 September, La Festa des Vermar is the annual grape harvest festival. Drawing crowds from across the island, see parades, grape-crushing and wine-tasting competitions. There are traditional musicians and puppeteers, fire-running and an exciting (rather messy) grape battle in a nearby field.
Stay in Cal Rei Petit. Sleeping six, the villa has a private pool and garden, a stone-built BBQ and dining terrace. Bikes are available on request. Spend seven nights from 21 September for £993 (£166 per person).
Fiesta of Black Pudding in St Joan - Xanet Katy (sleeps six)
Held on the first Sunday of October, the Fiesta Torrada d’es Borifarro (Festival of Black Pudding) in Saint Joan is dedicated to the locally-made black pudding and other Mallorcan delicacies such as pork Sobrassada (cured paprika sausage) and Butifarrones (spiced pork sausage).
Stay a scenic drive away at Xanet Katy in Pollenca. This three-bedroom country villa offers views across open countryside to the Tramuntana mountain range. Its 12m private pool is surrounded by lawns and a furnished sun terrace. Spend seven-nights from 5 October for £1,177 (£197 per person).
Inca Agricultural Fair - Finca Peric (sleeps four)
Great for families, Mallorca’s most important agricultural fair takes place between 19-27 October. Expect livestock and craft markets, horse shows, traditional dancing, acrobatics and fire displays. Many of the stall holders wear traditional dress while straw bales and ancient farming tools are scattered in the streets.
Stay 30 minutes away in a two-bedroom farmhouse close to Pollenca. Finca Peric sleeps four and is ideal for small families. Features include a private pool, a lawn and nearby walking and cycling. Spend seven nights from 19 October for £630 (£156 per person).
All prices include a maid service, starter pack and free wi-fi.
